Getting back in the habit of writing my review of the previous week's meals :) I tried some new delicious flavors this week, made over an old favorite recipe, and ate healthy when we went out. I'm proud of myself!

  • Monday, 9/2: Labor Day, stayed in with a cold and cooked: created a Hatch Chile salad, inspired by finding roasted hatch chiles at Whole Foods. Combined grilled chicken, quinoa, chiles, peaches, sweet potatoes and a bunch of other veggies to make something cohesive and delicious. dinner: spaghetti squash with meatballs.
  • Tuesday, 9/3: special Maciflowercheese with sausage and salad. This was an attempt at a vegetable-filled, but still flavorful, version of one of the meals I miss cooking the most on this new healthy meal plan. Featured Vlaskaas, a creamy sweet Gouda-like cheese that we got on our Leavenworth trip, roasted cauliflower, and a light white sauce with celery. breakfast: omelet with hatch chiles. lunch: leftover barbecue tempeh.
  • Wednesday, 9/4: early dinner for one - turkey Goulash with spaghetti squash. I attempted to find something similar to the flavor of what my mom made for us as kids (ground beef, macaroni, and tomato paste) in a healthier format with added peppers and onions. I need some good paprika, and I tried cinnamon and some nutmeg, but there's still some flavor missing that I'm not remembering! breakfast: bananacake with sausage and veggies. lunch: spinach salad with peaches, homemade tomatilla sauce, and chicken.
  • Thursday, 9/5: Chicken Ginger noodle soup with salad. This is an invention I started doing while loosing weight to use shiritaki noodles and celery, both filling items for low carbs and calories! I jazzed the salad up with hard boiled egg whites, dried apricots, and cashews. breakfast: omelet with tomatilla sauce. lunch: leftover goulash.
  • Friday, 9/6: early dinner for one - Turkey slowcooker meatloaf, based loosely on this Paleo recipe with Braised red cabbage, based loosely on this allrecipes recipe with mods from the comments. breakfast: banana bread oatmeal (instagram). lunch: egg scramble with tomatilla sauce.
  • Saturday, 9/7: girls day OUT - egg-white Greek frittata with chicken sausage from Mother's in Portland with fabulous French press coffee. Had a few of the rosemary potatoes the kitchen incorrectly sent. Perfect flavors of spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta combine so well here! dinner: chicken burger sautéed with cauliflower and fennel, served with cottage cheese and leftover red cabbage. snack: apple crisp with peanut butter granola topping.
  • Sunday, 9/8: groceries day OUT - Grilled chicken apple salad from Red Robin. We got some exercise by walking there and through the mall! dinner: corn on the cob, tofurky sausage, cucumber salad, egg. snack: frozen yogurt from the mall, sweetened with stevia.
